Your skin is your largest organ. Your skin covers your whole body, and it is exposed first to every element. Whether it be the clothes or materials you put over top of it. Or the various elements such as sun, wind, cold or heat exposed on your bare skin.
Your skin protects you and is tough, but for your skin to look and perform its best, it also needs some TLC.
Did you know that up to 70% of what you put on your skin gets absorbed? And wait for it … in as little as 30 seconds. Wow!
So when we say Our heart and soul is Organic Skincare™ - you can see why. Our organic products are made with quality ingredients, grown and ethically harvested in Ontario, because we are well aware that they are being absorbed through our skin.
Some other fun facts about your skin. Your skin is thickest on your feet – makes sense since your entire body weight is pressing on it.
Conversely, your skin is thinnest around your eyes – which is why we recommend an eye cream specifically designed to delicately treat the eye area.
Your skin is also constantly shedding, remember it is a living organ. Some of the ‘dust’ we have in our home is actually skin cells that have shed off. Your skin renews itself every month, and a good skincare routine should support that process.
This is why our philosophy is nourish and treat your skin, while it goes through its natural process of healing, shedding and growing. For example the Vitamin A in many of our products help boost your skins immunity, and support your skins ability to produce new skin cells.
Finally, did you also know that your skin is made up of approx. 65% water?
So what does all of this mean? We love skin, and you should too. And the best way to treat what you love is to take care of it, so it can take care of you.
